Historic CO2 Emissions Require Immediate Cuts say two scientists in the scientific peer-reviewed journal Nature Climate Change, reports Tim Radford at Climate Central, arguing that as carbon dioxide continues to rise, as it did to record levels in 2012 and is set to do in 2013, it will commit future generations to even more warming. Commit is an important word: we are ASSURING our descendents that they will suffer from our current emissions. And we are increasing their suffering, in terms of worsening climate change, every day, as we continue to add to those emissions.
Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here: http://signon.org/sign/we-are-the-clean-99?source=c.em.cp&r_by=487176 . This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is in 2 years!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
